Hey guys!

sorry if this questions already been asked! i did a search but it brought up 100s of threads!

if the maximum tire width for my wheels is 1.75, is it a really bad idea to put bigger tires on i.e. 1.95, as im looking for white tires, and really like the "gusset pimp" but it only comes in 1.95 and 2.20! or does anyone know any other good white street tires? Ones made with white rubber, not black ones coloured white like old ones where the white would scratch off!!

cheers

that is the width of your rim, and you should have no problem fitting a fatter tire on that rim. my front rim is 1.5" and i run a 20.1 tire on it. most bmx rims for adult-sized bmx bikes are 1.75. the only exception is those super-narrow rims for mini bmx bikes for little kids to race.
